Hi, I made some games in ActionScript 3 and recently switched over to C++ a month ago. I already knew some things about C++ because AS3 is quite similar to it. So I chose SFML as my API to use to create games with.

 

After going through this tutorial: http://www.gamefromscratch.com/page/Game-From-Scratch-CPP-Edition.aspx I learned quite a bit about SFML, but after finishing through it, I still don't feel very confident with using SFML and C++.

 

Can someone lead me in the right direction to make myself more confident with the language and API? Basically what I'm trying to say is, is that when I see C++ and SFML code, I understand it (well, most of it) but when I am trying to create my own, I am braindead, I don't really know what to do.


I am planning to recreate my games I already created in AS3, but of course, there's the barrier of me not being so confident as I was with AS3.

 

Thanks.
